Chimps are Family 2021

Chimps are Family 2021

Chimps are charismatic, intelligent, and endangered. Despite our family connection, sharing 99% of our DNA making them our closest relatives, we are their biggest threat. 

Gillie and Marc were lucky enough to study a sweet family of chimpanzees. They were left feeling amazed. The similarities to us were uncanny; the sweet little babies were just as cheeky as human babies and were very attached to their mums. Gillie and Marc could see them grasp onto things, the same way that human babies do, a testament to our evolutionary past.

Chimps are Family became a monumental public art project to teach the public about the different chimp behaviours, helping them to understand this wonderful animal and discover the similarities with our closest relative. But Gillie and Marc have also created this small-scale series so you can welcome these cuties into your home and your family. With a range of gorgeous prints and sculptures, you can share the message of love and conversation for all chimps.
